a battle over the right to bare it all in public. today a judge waded into the fight over a new public nudity ban in san francisco. city officials say it's a matter of public safety. nudity advocates say it's an attempt to cover up their constitutional rights. and while both sides battled in court, protesters bared their souls and a lot more on the courthouse steps. nbc bay area's kimberly little terry joins us with the latest on what happened inside and outside of that croom. >> raj, we should know by the end of the month whether it will be a crime to be naked on the streets of san francisco. today a federal judge said he would hand down his ruling on the constitutionality of a new anti-nudity law before it's set to take effect february 1st. public nudity activists who
6:11pm
filed a federal lawsuit seeking to invalidate the new law argue it violates their first amendment rights. they say nudity is a form of expression. but in court today, the deputy city attorney argued that simply disrobing in public doesn't send any clear political message. instead she told the judge, it's a threat to public safety. >> there's concern about public safety, about distracting drivers, about obstructing the free philosophy pedestrian traffic. there's concerns about the harms that people feel when they are exposed to nudity unwillingly. >> to the extent that the power that the city has the power tore, quote unquote, protect the health and welfare of the citizenry, it can only act when it actually and only is based on science. and not rumor. facts and not prejudice. >> before and after the hour-long hearing, nude
6:12pm

6:13pm
performance. >> i sat on a panel this morning with business leaders from throughout the country and what they kept repeating was, you have no idea how good you have it here. >> here's how good we have it. san jose has added the most jobs in the country the last few years. it's part of the reason silicon valley finds itself ranked as best performing city in the united states by the milken institute study. here's the criteria being judged. job growth, wage and salary growth, hi-tech gdp growth and hi-tech gdp location quo yent which basically means how many tech companies are concentrated in one area. as you can tell, the formula for determining the best cities is, well, very tech heavy. >> tech has been a catalyst for growth in the u.s. for us to remain competitive, we have to be at the very high edge of innovation, creating new products and services that companies and consumers demand not only in the u.s. but around the world. >> tech production tends to sink lower when the economy is
6:14pm
struggling and when things are going well, drive us out of recession according to ross duval, study author. things are booming now and the numbers would support that. according to a new report on startups compiled by researchers, silicon 1234r50e8 12 was the best place in the world to start a company. that might explain the area's number one ranking notice milken study but also consider these tidbits. san jose's wage growth dropped almost 2% in the last year, per the u.s. labor statistics and santa clara's unemployment rate, while a steady 7.7% is good for just seventh best in the state of california. >> job growth here greatly exceeds what we're seeing in any other metro area in the country. the challenge is there are still many families struggling as we know. unemployment exceeds 8% in san jose. >> and council mann's remarks there summarize the situation well. we are adding the most jobs of any place in the country here in silicon valley.
6:15pm
that's true. startups are flourishing. but the overall economy by standard measures like unemployment and wage growth has aways to go, giving that ranking a footnote. i'm sam bracken. that is today's reality check. >> thank you. the term fleet discount generally refers to cars but now actram is applying it to trains. amtrak is combining its buying power with the california high speed rail authority to do what shoppers everywhere strive to do, get a discount. by joining forces, the two rail giants want to negotiate lower prices for specialized trains which can travel at 220 miles per hour. construction will begin this summer on california's high speed rail system. the first 65-mile stretch will run from merced to fresno. officials with both railroads hope to purchase about 60 trains over the next decade with the first order placed next year. >> one of the world's biggest surfing events is just three days away. we're talking about mavericks on the san mateo county coast. fans can't get onto the beach to
6:16pm
watch but local technology can now offer you an even better view of the action. our business and tech reporter scott budman has more on the local company that's going to put you right on the waves. >> that's right. big waves are making mavericks dangerous for nonsurfers but a small piece of technology developed here is giving you a chance to get right up to the action. because of concerns brought on by this big wave two years ago, you won't be able to get close to these big waves this year at mavericks. unless you're following one of these. if you're a surfer, say hello to your little friend. the go pro camera, used by athletes everywhere and coming to mcnabb ribs for a starring role. >> they're the most passionate moments of our lives. >> justin wilkinfeld was one of the first people hired at go pro. he like lots of employees here loves to surf. and loves to give everyone an upclose look at the sport.
6:17pm
>> being able to capture moments while you're out there surfing with your friends and what not and to see some of the best pro surfers in the world using our cameras to help capture those moments and share that with the media and show the world what it's like to be on board, you know, 30, 40, 50-foot waves is insane. >> it's also catching on. gopro is growing like crazy. now with close to 400 employees in its new headquarters and with help from a $200 million investment from china's foxconn is hiring even more. all this because of tiny cameras and a loyalty they inspire. >> well, what's fascinating is every day we're humbled in this office. a new piece of content lands on our social media inbox, and it's something totally unexpected. we just found some ostrich jockeys that race ostriches rocking these things. >> whatever you're looking for on two legs, go pro probably follows it, a mix of technology,
6:18pm
social media and sports coming to a wave near you. >> the surfers will compete sunday for $50,000 in prize money. the winner will earn $12,000. janelle and raj? >> amazing. they started on the peninsula, right? just surfers? >> yeah, a lot of them started in half moon bay in san diego and still have offices in both. that brought them together and said hey, we want a better way to show this stuff off. that's where it all launched. >> really cool. >> it is. we have our weather forecast for mavericks. let's bring meteorologist jeff ranieri. >> video was awesome like you're almost out there surfing. so cool. mavericks waves are going to continue build out in the pacific. still a few thousand miles out, at least the energy that will help to produce that. by some of these models as we head into saturday, the swells will start to increase. then by sunday, that's when it looks like the swells will peak out with mavericks now on sunday. wave heights right now small. only 3 to 4 feet. that's it. winds not very strong, north at

6:48pm
rip currents. advise extreme caution. spare the air for friday. air quality will continue to stay pretty poor up into the north and also the central bay as the air is going to be very stagnant. the wind's not going to move too much. high pressure aloft. it's going to cause you problems if you suffer from allergies. temperatures in the mid 50s across most of the bay area. it's clear in san francisco right now. with just some of that haze lingering around for tonight. weather pattern right now is allowing all of the rainfall and by all the rainfall, i mean every single last drop to push way off to the north. the next closest storm system is 1567800 miles away. and you can thank high pressure for producing all of this dry weather. it's going to stay put here as we head throughout friday, saturday, sunday, maybe monday and tuesday of next week for very mild weather weather to continue in the forecast. a few 70s expected this weekend. half moon bay going up to 70 by sunday. gilroy 7-0, and san francisco
6:49pm
even a very mild for this time of the year 69 degrees. for tomorrow morning, low 30s in the north bay. some patchy frost. 32 in livermore, 36 in san jose, 33 in the almaden valley. for tomorrow, it is going to be warmer, as well with mid 60s in santa rosa. 64 in san rafael. 67 in san jose. you can almost feel the heat on that map down into santa cruz with 69 degrees. you know when it's warmer here than it is for the interior valleys you've got an offshore wind event setting up. that's why the coast will be warmer than some of the interior valleys for tomorrow. 3 day forecast sunny and hazy the next couple days. air quality probably not bet they are weekend. to be a good next couple days.ng you may feel like you're sick but it could be that air quality. i'm no doctor but that's what some of the signs point to. monday, tuesday and wednesday, a little bit of cloud cover.
6:50pm
no rain drops in the seven-day forecast. we're pushing that back till maybe next weekend. we'll have to see about this one. maybe we'll get a picture from jess at the concert. you never know. >> having a great time. >> she'll be dancing away. >> thanks, jeff. >> let's get to sports jim kozimor is here. look who i'm sitting next to, the expert of the 49ers. >> yeah, i'm so embarrassed by our picks last week, that i'm starting with baseball tonight. that's how embarrassed i am. all right, guys, let's get things going in sports. giants will partake in the upcoming world baseball classic with pagano and lopez suit up for puerto rico. romo will be playing for mexico. the venezuelan team will include marco security row along with pablo sandoval who apparently hasn't been feeling well. he is hospitalized due to abdominal pain according to his brother and then sandoval's
6:51pm
venezuelan team tweeting out there's no major complications and he could be back with the team within days. two giants representing the united states in the march tournament will be starting pitcher ryan vogelsong and reliever jerry affeldt. vogelsong gave up just three runs in four starts while affeldt didn't allow a single run. now on to football. three days away from the 49ers taking on the atlanta falcons in the nfc title game. colin kaepernick and that many pistol offense are the rage in the nfl world. it didn't start out that way back in week 11. mindy bach tells us who didn't buy in at first. >> recent offensive coordinator greg roman liked the pistol formation as soon as he saw it. mainly because having the running back lineup directly behind the quarterback makes the offense unpredictable. a run can go any direction in a read option as can a pass in a play fake. but to get it to work, roman would have to convince his star running back. frank gore did not mince words
6:52pm
about how he first felt about the pistol formation. >> i thought -- i felt like that's not real football. you know, coming from miami, you know, it was like pro style offense. you know, i didn't -- think really big of it. >> the veteran admitted the nuances of the pistol took some getting used to. >> i had to adjust because i don't know if i'm going to get the ball or not. so the i got to be patient. you know? and stay on my course and if i got it, you know, i got to adjust to what i see. >> i think there's a chemistry that is built, and it's you know, it's not something that you can easily write on paper to describe. but it's a matter of pressure. and the quarterback, you know, has the ball, controls the ball and when he pulls it, i mean, he's yanking that thing out. there is no indecision. so it's definitely, i mean, he is ripping that thing out with conviction. >> after rushing for more than 100 yards for the first time in a game in the postseason, in addition to calling kaepernick's
6:53pm
181 rushing yard performance, gore is a believer. >> you know, they got -- they're going to have to look out for them, you know? so hopefully they keep looking out for him and 21 keep getting the ball. i just do what he did last week. get us to the super bowl, i'm with it. >> gore is not the only offensive player who initially did not like the formation. at least one offensive lineman told me the same thing, but now he says he's nearly foolproof for the 49ers. he says defenses cannot defend it the way kaepernick, gore and lamichael james execute it. mindy bach, nbc bay area. >> let's move to basketball. golden state warriors. here's what we know regarding steph curry. he missed last night's loss to the heat due to ankle and knee issues and now out indefinitely. he will be in san antonio for tomorrow's game against the spurs. no timeline when heal return. we know he won't be an nba all-star and won't be at the all-star game as least at a
